supporting these items which we actually have been routinely bringing before the board over the last 15 years, i believe. we did also request hearing just because there has been new news potentially radiologically impacted sites on treasure island. of course there have been concerns amongst residents and we want the board to have opportunity to learn more about these reports and also ask any questions as necessary. so we have the director of the treasure island development authority here to present on both items before us and to answer any connective questions that we might have regarding the navy which is the party we are contracting with, as well as questions about liability. so i did wan want to introduce merriam from the treasure island development authority. >> president chiu: supervisor avalos. >> supervisor avalos: thank you. and, yes, that's exactly how we had our discussion last week, colleagues, that we had some concerns about the recent reportings of potential radiological contamination that still remains or may still remain on treasure island. actually, it does remain. we're trying to figure out what level it is. and i have concerns -- there were different reports that have come out over the years and most recently from
